into an agreement with the united states navy for the navy to provide services to the port to prepare dry dock no. 1 for demolition and disposal. >> i'm here before you to ask your approval of the resolution, which would authorize executive director moyer to enter into a memorandum of understanding between united states navy and the port to allow the navy to execute the first phase of the dry dock disposal project. so, first, very brief bit of history on the dry dock. it was constructed in 1942 for the world war ii shipbuilding and ship prepare effort. it was in use for over 50 years, finally due to excessive wear and tear declared unfit for service in 1999. as a bit of visual history, the photo in the background was taken shortly after in 2003 when the dry dock broke loose of its moorings and landed on treasure island. the picture you see there is dry dock number 1 inside of dry dock number 2, being lifted out of the water to be serviced. >> can you talk [speaker not understood], this is how far. >> where is it located now? >> yes. >> it has been at pier 50 adjacent to the maintenance shed for abou
be a good idea for us to hear about the operations that the chilean navy had undertaken for helping out their citizens. we have a panel here today, we actually have two panels we're going to roll through. one is stories from the field, if you will, people's experiences in working in international environments to help promote humanitarian missions. fleet week got involved with a humanitarian mission back in october in the earthquake in van, turkey. there's a heavy kurdish in san francisco and the ... better recover from their event and how to better prepare in the future from the katz traufk event that had taken place would not occur. we got a phone call at the fleet week association to ask if we could help bring together some resources and leet a fact-finding mission and we did that. one of our panelists is up here, second from your left, rob dudgeon, he's with the department of emergency management and he's the director of emergency services. rob's organization has been instrumental in creating the program that we have from back in 2010 all the way through to today and i know in th

7-month deployment. captain mike napolitano is serving with the navy's expedition training group. while deployed in 2004, he spearheaded maritime patrol relief efforts toing the 2004 indian ocean tsunami, as well as numerous theater cooperation efforts throughout the pacific and in 2009 captain napolitano reported as commanding officer of the expeditionary training group. this is a fabulous panel and i know you're going to appreciate what they have to say. rear admiral, i think you'll start. >> first of all on behalf of the chilean navy i would like to thank so much to san francisco fleet week, particularly to admiral gary roughhead for being invited to participate in this senior seminar. it's a privilege for me to be here and to share with you the experience that we had just during and after the earthquake that we had in chile in february 27, 2010. most of the lessons learned that i'm going to show here to you is part of your concern and i'm very glad you are taking that in account so i think you are absolutely in the right path. anyway, it's a massive event that you always

from the very beginning where i asked jack people to imagine themselves in the navy seals training. this is out its starts. you stand in freezing water up to your chest. every muscle in your body throbs with pain. you're exhausted beyond anything you could ever imagine, and all around you the night air carries the curses and groans of others who are getting it out like you, trying to survive the night. most won't. you know the statistics. maybe one in ten will make it through this we can survive hours, days of the punishment required to become a navy s.e.a.l. that water is dark around you, but you can make out lights on the beach. roy member your instructors words as the center toward the horizon, their voices booming over the bull horn. say goodnight to the sun. the night is going to be a very, very long night. your imagine another hundred hours of this. you see yourself plunging over and over into the icy water pulling yourself out again. you imagine endless repetition of ceps, flutter kicks, pushups. surf torture, they call it. they leave here in freezing water. not just for a f
in the marine corps is similar to the navy. we have the installation, the regional installation command and also partners with the operational foresite. we allow the operational foresight, we maintain those but then we coordinate, cooperate, with the operational foresight once the call comes in for support. so we're able to do that obviously through memorandum of understandings and we have agreements and our wing operating orders allow for the fact the operational control, at least under operational response, maintains with the operators. the third aircraft wing maintains operational control but we send our operatives out to be controlled by the civic sight. we're comfortable with that and that's matured a lot in the last couple years. >> talked a lot about command and control and agreements and moving resources. one other question that came up yesterday we were discussing yesterday is how do communications occur specifically with regard to when we start talking about air ops and moving air resources around, how do we ensure that we have that interoperatability that we discussed so much yes
and part of the project, asked the navy rather to expend all of its funds in the most productive way they can. and at the end put it in a form can easily be returned to us and we go out to bid. these other options here top wise 80 aepre, nav sea, the navy would start to fund them before they're out of the $3 million. we would be forced to go to a sole source contracting vehicle for those. so, i didn't mean to get too much into the wave there. it gets complicated in phase ii and 3. that is the the subject of the resolution that is before you. so, the purpose of the m-o-u is my favorite shout out, by the way, just a side-view. the m-o-u nav sea and titan salvage dry dock number one to begin phase 1 of the work. it gives them something to point to, lest the coast guard a excuse them of stealing it when they toe it to pier 50 of the shipyard. that is also the vehicle that is going to contain the release of liability which is important piece of this. the navy will not proceed without it because salvage operations are inherently risky and if, you know, salvages sometimes sink during tow an
was asked that night, but at the time the navy didn't have this information. how many notice of violations have been issued to date for the navy or their contractors by our regulatory agencies? >> our understanding and our records and review of the records that we have is that the states lead regulatory department of agency, toxic and substance control hasn't issued violations to the navy or their contractors. shaw environmental, who is the navy's contractor on this work, did receive a notice of violation from the california department of public health, the agency that had been conducting these scans that we talked about, on june 23rd, 2011. these violations -- a notice of violation is a statement that says, you need to correct these problems. and all of those violations, those problems were corrected by shaw to the satisfaction of the california department of public health. >> okay. so, during this time we only have one reported notice of violation, that was to shaw, in june 2011 and they have since abated -- addressed and abated that [speaker not understood]? >> that is the information w
] coming through, we're now able to do ships for the navy seal of command that we couldn't do at all. the u.s. government is now actually scheduling ships to the san francisco yard based on the availability of the dry dock. we've had discussions yesterday about when is the richard burt coming in. richard burth is another very large project like the matthew perry, like the alan shepherd. there's only two dry dockses in the pacific basin that can pick them up, one is in guantanamo, one -- guam and one is in san francisco. i have to say thank you to the port of san francisco for the hard work and dedication of the teams there and the vision that they have for the shipyard and for the industry. i mean, monique's cruise, monique's teams are without equal. honest to goodness, it has really been a meerctionv you are to work with them and i look forward to the things we're moving forward on. the yard, san francisco, we're going to have one of the busiest years the yard has ever had, period, end of story. we're growing in a very tough market and we're growing in a tough market in no small part due
and in the navy's presentation, it talks about area 1231 and 12 33. well, that's my block, northpoint. there are two sets of buildings that are empty that have been empty, and we walk our dogs there. there is the wind surfing is there, and that's not fenced in. so, how safe is it if, you know, people can just kind of wander there and it's just open? so, that worries me about that one spot. and thank you for having the hearing today. i appreciate it. >> thank you. if i could just clarify the first issue -- concern you brought up. your concern is not necessarily the contractor friday night. you're concerned if they leave the gates open, people coming in -- >>> how safe is that? >> um-hm, okay. hopefully we can figure out -- i'm not sure if that's sfpd or someone else, but hopefully we can find a way to address that question. thank you, ms. hogue. >>> good evening, my name is amber montayo. thanks for having this hearing tonight. i've been a resident for 13 years. i first lived on treasure island on northpoint drive for five years and i've been on ybi for the past more than eight years.
flare up. >> our navy is smaller now than anytime since 1917. the navy said they needed 313 ships to carry out their mission. we are now down to 285 headed to the low 200s if we go through a sequestration. that is unacceptable to me. >> governor we also have fewer horses and bayonets because the nature of our military has changed. we have these things aircraft carriers where planes land a little bit obama. >> 663 in the pentagon. >> they are all sharp too, the women. >> romney made a very good point. >> that is actually the wall street journal. >> reagan had a 600 ship navy. it is now down to fewer than 300. also the american people talking straight politics, you tell them we are going to build up our ships that is very positive with the american people in terms of defense. i think you ought to have a 300 ship navy because we are going to be bringing the troops home. >> first of all the president is right when he says you don't count ships you count the effectiveness of the navy and of the entire military force. what romney is doing is he is appealing to the ship building faciliti
quote, he halted reductions in the navy. that's what he said. but today, today he again has shrunk to a smaller version of the navy, and his view of the navy's role. you may recall in our most recent debate i made the point our navy is now smaller than at any time in, well, almost 100 years, and the president's response was, well, we don't use bayonets and horses anymore. and in fact we do use bayonets, and -- [applause] >> and a modern navy is one of the critical elements that allows to us protect sea lanes and keep the world more free and props produce. i believe in a modern navy. my plan is to increase the number of ships we're building to maintain our strong commitment to our military. [applause] >> his vision is not greatness in america's navy or military. his vision is to cut our military spending bay trillion dollars. and by the way, a trillion dollars in cuts would cost about 41,000 jobs here in florida. and think of all the businesses that depend upon those jobs. it's extraordinary but the president's alleged keeps getting smaller and smaller and smaller. not just for the
serving in iraq and afghanistan. this event held on september 11, 2012 is hosted by the navy memorial here in washington d.c. it's just under an hour. [applause] the mac thanks to all my classmates and coeditors and mentors who helped make this possible. in february to the night vision this book. everything is happening for me as an active-duty salt and afghanistan in kandahar. i was working for general nick nicholson, doing cool things is a swell stansell are now, supporting my country. maybe i should do a book. really, compared to ben wagner? really, compared to jacob sabe? and f-18 pilot to saved the stryker battalion. well, made cbs colleague, jason jackson. the story of this book were exceptional and i that i will ask us present at 2002 it could connect the stories come from personalities together to weave together a book that could define this decade through leadership ones. so i called carol andersen. carol andersen wasserstein richard in a helicopter accident. i called her on the phone as i did all the mothers who go for the book who lost their sons and i said carol, i would like t
not understood]. niche a was mentioned this morning. that was a fantastic piece of work by the navy. it turned around the attitudes of niche a toward the united states. it was a the kind of building block we look for in an economic and security commons. just as when we in san francisco see not only what the military can bring to the party and help us with, not only how we can interact with the military, but also we say to ourselves, it's also up to us to do everything we can for ourselves. we're not kind of an outfit, it's easier for them to collaborate with us. so, all of these things are important to us as we have these exercises. so, i say this is a very worthwhile enterprise that will keep going. i tip my hat to my friend mike who really has been leading us in these efforts. and now i say as also the slogan, i guess you call it this morning, maybe it's what the navy says. i think it's a very good phrase. a global force for good. that's what we've been practicing, a global force for good. thank you. (applause) >> thank you, sir. thank you. thank you very much, sir. (applause) >> and for all
because they were identified as potential sites by the navy? >> there's two categories. there was potential sites. on the map it's the orange hatched areas. and in addition there were five areas of high traffic areas and high-use areas where we asked them to additionally assess to just verify. >> okay, thank you. and then about the 1231-12 33, this was brought up. the question was is it okay for the neighbors to walk their dogs because the area is not [speaker not understood] off. >> my understanding is if it is okay, i am not familiar with those exact house numbers. >> could you please follow-up? >> yes, i can follow-up on that one. >> great. one of the other questions -- a couple of members had brought up the issue of the pipes. and how can we ensure that the pipes are free from contamination since they are below ground? >> so, i think people understand the water comes from hetch hetchy. but are we worried about contamination from the pipes that are below ground, probably below the 12 feet that's being assessed and surveyed. and what can we do if we do find green and
to america. >> our navy is smaller now that any time the 1917. that is unacceptable to me. this is the highest responsibility of the presence of united states, and i will not cut the military budget by a trillion dollars, a combination of the budget cut the president has. that is making our future less certain and less secure. host: what is your reaction? guest: i am surprised irani is still talking about the navy after the president made about forces and bayonets. people know and understand president obama is devoted to the security of this country, that he made the call to send in the seals to take out osama bin laden it was such a threat to our country. has made a real wa priority of eliminating the leadership of al qaeda. he has extricated as out of a choice -- for a choice in iraq that cause the problems in the real economy here at home and allies around the world. president obama has done a great job on national security and foreign affairs. mitt romney, you saw him in the debate on the topic of foreign policy. most of his ideas he was a neat, too, with respect to th
in not only crews but equipment from the army and the navy. they are trying to work on the world trade center area to get the water out. they are sending in an unwatering team after hurricane katrina in illinois. bringing in pumps from the navy. here is a perfect reason why here at battory park we have the battery tunnel park full of water. it is unbelievable looking at this. some subways will start north of 34th street. 5 and a half million people ride the subway every day here. transportation authority says every day the subway system is closed it costs about $18 million in revenue. 18,000 flights have been grounded. it will take days before it is back to normal. new york's three major airports are expected to be open with limited flights. both from laguardia airport will be starting at 7:00 a.m. 3 occupants or more will have to be in the car to go over the east bridges. it is to help out a huge traffic problem going on around the city. there has been a gas shortage as well as you can image. the drivers literally are running out of gas because they can't fill the reservations they already
, but that's a side note. wait a minute. thobama called the navy seals. they got bin laden. the navy seals we now discovered during this benghazi attack, the ambassador asked for help beforehand. they asked for help while they were being under attack. we know that we had ty wood's father on this program last night. he literally defied orders to go save 30 american lives and gave his life for his country and was told to stand down. where was obama when the seals called him requesting help? i want an answer before the election. i want to hear those tapes. i want america to see those tapes before election day. >> well, you're talking about politicizing tragedy. >> sean: i want the truth. >> the truth is coming out because an investigation is being done by the government. it took years after 9/11. >> sean: why did the president for two weeks deny this was a terror attack. why did he deny the extra security to the ambassador. >> this is how mitt romney got in trouble in the second debate. >> sean: wait a minute. why during the attack our government is watching it in real-time, our intelligence kne

, an october surprise. this is news. when you look at the navy seals when they took out osama bin laden back on may 1st of last year. we got leaks from the white house within 7 minutes that it was happening and now 7 weeks later, nothing. >> it is not like mitt romney coordinated with militias to attack the ambassador. these are real developments that happened and the white house's answers are bizarre. early on in this, the administration said that the two navy seals were there as the ambassador's personal protection which is flatly untrue. there are so any questions and yet the media treats it as if it is an inconvenient story to talk about before the election and it is illegitimate. >> steve: you will not see this story on the washington post. but there is a writer that said the attack on the u.s. consulate is a political football with all of the grandstand misinformation but fox news raised questions about the attack that deserve a clear answer from the obama administration. that should be on the front page and not back in the opinion section. >> yeah, jennifer griffin, i never heard anyt
in the state. for that we've got emergency generators. we've got a navy ship that has some helicopters that can help to move assets around the state as well. and so we are going to be working with governor christi's office to identify the critical infrastructure and how we can get what's needed as quickly as possible. a couple other things we are concerned about, one is as power starts coming back on, we want to make sure that people can also get to work. obviously there are a lot of folks in jersey who work in new york, in the city, and in other places where transportation may be hobbled. one of the things i mentioned to the governor is the possibility of us using federal assets, military assets, as well as taking inventory of assets from around the country that can be brought in so that we can help people get to their work. and governor christi also mentioned the importance of schools. the sooner we can get our kids back in school, the sooner they are back in a routine, that helps the families and helps the kids as well. we are going to have a lot of work to do. i don't want anybody to feel t
some of this in the other debates. governor, you say you want a bigger military. you want a bigger navy. you don't want to cut defense spending. what i want to ask you, we're talking about financial problems in this country. where are you going to get the money? >> well, let's -- let's come back and talk about the military, but all the way -- all the way through. first of all, i'm going through, from the very beginning, we're going to cut about 5 percent of the discretionary budget excluding military. that's number one. all right? >> but can you do this without driving us deeper into debt? >> the good news is, i'll be happy to have you take a look. come on our website, you'll look at how we get to a balanced budget within eight to 10 years. we do it by getting -- by reducing spending in a whole series of programs. by the way, number one i get rid of is "obamacare. " there are a number of things that sound good but, frankly, we just can't afford them. and that one doesn't sound good, and it's not affordable, so i get rid of that one from day one; to the extent humanly possible, we get th
that will drive the asian-pacific century. our navy, our air force, there is a recognition of were the challenges are. there is a really exciting ideas and a bubbling up of initiatives. you name it. it is taking place across the realm. there is nothing like success to make people want to remain engage. we have spent a lot. we have lost all locked in some of these other places. -- we have lost a lot in some of these other places. even when we have not been fundamentally successful in the violation stage -- valuation i think that will continue in the future. >> i agree with him. adding our challenge is within -- i think our challenge is within our own society. the toxic nature of our fiscal risk and the lack of bipartisanship now, politically and economically, that is the single best thing we can do for our china policy and what we can do for our foreign policy and. we are way ahead of everyone, including china. we have the best universities. we have entrepreneurialism spirits. we have a political system. i will take us over china and others. we're all gonna be thinking about the polarization next
have emergency generators. we have a navy ship that has helicopters that can move assets around the state as well. we are going to be working with local officials to identify those critical infrastructure and how we can get what is needed as quickly as possible. a couple of other things we are concerned about, as power starts coming back on, we want to make sure people can also get to work. a lot folks in jersey work in new york come in the city, and in other places where transportation may be hobbled. one of the things i mentioned is the possibility of us using federal assets, and military assets as well as taking inventory of the country that can be brought in so we can help people get to their work. governor christie also mentioned the importance of schools. the sooner we can get them back into school, the sooner they are in a routine, that helps the families. we are going to have a lot of work to do. i do not want anybody to feel that somehow this is going to be cleaned up over night. we want to make sure people have realistic expectations. what i can promise is the federal
not necessarily born in virginia, due to the influence of the navy. the navy brings lots of people in from across the nation and across the world. the richmond area is an urban area, but it's probably the most conservative urban region in this area and maybe one of the most conservative in the country. of course, is a traditional area, particularly because of the west side of richmond, the city of richmond, the east side is heavily african-american and the west side is predominately white and his conservative with a high nativity rate. some of the surrounding counties have become more diverse over the years, but by and large it is also a conservative suburban ex-urban area. those are three. you may include far south virginia and a world unto itself. it used to be substantially republican, but mountain valley republican, a more liberal republican flavor intuit. then it went democratic and now it's very conservative republican, in part because coal is such a major part of the economy down there. and there is outside virginia, on the north carolina border, many of those counties are majority african
